Free Speech Online Suspended in Arizona
« on: April 07, 2012, 12:41:09 AM »
Sigh... I'm really getting sick of this... It's just non-stop, all the time.  :mad:

In any event, Arizona has effectively ended free speech. They passed legislation that has insanely broad language that makes it illegal to offend anyone. Seriously? I find that law rather offensive. ;) :P Perhaps they should charge and imprison everyone that voted for the law. ;D

6 months in jail + $2,500 fine. For calling someone a name, or being "offensive".  :o

I don't think I ever want to go to the US ever again. Not the way things are now, or not in the direction they are going. The place is being systematically destroyed. I hope things reverse... The US desperately needs to be restored back to what it was originally intended to be when the founding fathers wrote the Constitution. I'd love to go back and visit that place...

Judge Andrew Napolitano recently said: "I think the president is dangerously close to totalitarianism." While it's off-topic from Arizona banning free speech, all this stuff is pointing in the same direction.

They turned Arizona into Pleasantville!

Plus, I posted it elsewhere but I'll repeat it in this thread.
1. Post nude picture of myself looking scary
2. Get arrested for posting nude picture
3. Strip searched nude for looking scary.

Hmm... Arizona also passed that controversial law that allows police to detain and question anyone they think "looks" like an illegal alien.

So what if I report some illegal alien-looking person I don't like and refer to him/her as a "f**king illegal alien"? Do we both get arrested?   ;)  ;D

Sadly, you can be strip searched for anything at all now:

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that officials may strip-search people arrested for any offense, however minor, before admitting them to jails even if the officials have no reason to suspect the presence of contraband.

Good news for people that like being perversely violated. :P

Hahahaha~! ;D

Well, I suppose that your next worry is whether you're strip searched first or not, and if you're second, does the searcher put on a new pair of latex gloves~? ;D :P

You could always help the situation by eating lots of baked beans and tacos with lots of hot sauce before reporting the illegal alien. ;)
